I have recently become aware of this forum and as many of us I have been searching for years for a classic theme which can be used in Windows 10. But after the death of Neiio nearly two years ago, who published regularly classic themes at deviantart.com, no one else continued his work and created a classic theme. Well, there are quite a few designers at deviantart.com, but just publishing these ugly, 'modern' dark themes.... So last December I have written to some of them asking for a classic theme and got two responses:
2) A user called cleodesktop, located in East Asia, offered to create a theme in exchange for some bucks. His theme is based on a theme made by sagorpirbd for Windows 8. The version made by cleodesktop was already quite good, nevertheless I made some changes using msstyleEditorX64 and would like to modify more things, but he no longer responses my mails. That's why I am publishing the theme here and asking for your support.
You can download the theme at www.share-online.biz/dl/W2269DMPQE. It is available for Windows 10 - March 2017, September 2017, April 2018 and October 2018 and size is approx. 12 MB.
My questions are summarized at Maybe anyone has got some ideas how to improve the theme ....

What is the practical consequences of the differences between a 'Windows Classic Theme' and a Visual Style 'imitating Windows Classic' ? From the user's view the result should be the same: And together with Classic Shell the presented 'Visual Style' offered in this thread gives an easy opportunity to get back a reasonable Interface one can work with. Just the taskbar is still missing (I don't consider SiB a viable solution). (BTW: Is the classic theme in Windows 7 still a classic theme? If I remember correctly it just uses a *.theme-file, not a msstyle-file)
